Ellen Page is only 22 years old and she already has an Oscar nomination, a hit movie, and now THR is reporting that shell be writing and producing a comedy on HBO with Whip It co-stars Alia Shawkat (20 years old) and Sean Tillmann (31 years old). Tillmann I get although his success is mainly in the musical arena where hes better known as Har Mar Superstar but think back to what you were doing when you were 20 or 22 years old and then just let that life shame wash over you. While youre in the middle of your shame-washing, hit the jump to find out the details about the show.
The single-camera comedy theyre planning is called Stitch N Bitch about two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyns Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists of any kind. Im interested in this project but Id like to know a little more beyond the logline. As for the casting, my first thought was, Page and Shawkat are writing the characters theyll play but THR says thats a possibility, its a decision that will be made at a later date. As of right now, Page is still in the middle of filming for Christopher Nolans Inception, Shawkat recently wrapped on the rock biopic The Runaways, and Har Mar Superstars fourth album hits stores next Tuesday. I find all of that very impressive especially since my biggest accomplishment today was almost remembering to pick up my dry cleaning.
